Cave and Technical Diving in Playa del Carmen, Mexico
1 on 1 and group Training
Welcome to my world! Cave and Technical Diving is something I am deeply passionate about. Located in Playa del Carmen, Mexico (Riviera Maya), Beyond Diving is in the perfect location for easy access to the largest underwater cave systems known to man and fastasic deep walls in the ocean perfect for technical diving.
My mission is to train you in the art of cave and technical diving by providing you with the proper tools, knowledge and inspiration to become a competent, safe cave diver and/or technical diver.
I offer you cutting-edge courses through Technical Diving International (TDI), and have the capability of teaching either in backmount or sidemount configurations. I do not require the use of a specific brand of equipment, so long as you are comfortable and it is adequate for the training being done.
Having a physical dive center, I can provide all the support and logistics that few others can give. That means repairing a faulty regulator, storing your gear safely, etc.
I don’t only teach cave diving and technical diving courses. I also offer guided dives in the cenotes of the Riviera Maya both in the cave and in the cavern for our recreational diver friends.
what They’re Saying about Cave Diving – beyond Diving
I did my TDI Sidemount and Full Cave Diver training with Erik. Flew all the way from New Zealand to Playa del Carmen to train with the man, and I was not disappointed in the least. Even though he is not one of those “internet/social media famous” instructors (he should be!), he taught me more in 2 weeks than I had learned in all previous courses I had taken (I am technical diver/trimix certified). He is laid back, but intense at the same time, and explains things the way his students need to hear them. If there’s a problem preventing your progress, he will help you find a solution to the problem. The dives were super fun, but at the same time quite challenging and demanding.
I will be back to do some more cave diving and hopefully next time I’ll train for and earn my stage cave diver certification.
After almost two weeks of busting my a$$ I am now Sidemount and Full Cave certified – feeling a little bit proud of myself right now. Thank you Erik at Beyond Diving for everything!Ruben S.
